The Synopsis for Cave of Forgotten Dreams (2010) 1080p
In 1994, a group of scientists discovered a cave in Southern France perfectly preserved for over 20,000 years and containing the earliest known human paintings. Knowing the cultural significance that the Chauvet Cave holds, the French government immediately cut-off all access to it, save a few archaeologists and paleontologists. But documentary filmmaker, Werner Herzog, has been given limited access, and now we get to go inside examining beautiful artwork created by our ancient ancestors around 32,000 years ago. He asks questions to various historians and scientists about what these humans would have been like and trying to build a bridge from the past to the present.

This is something more than a movie; it's a testament - and re-creation - of rapture.
Werner Herzog squanders the rare opportunity to film the oldest paintings in the world. The artists who painted these wonders 30,000 years ago (6 times older than than the pyramids), exhibit surprising skill, using simple lines to create realistic images of the animals they lived among.
In the cave, the movie is very interesting. However, Herzog spends too much time interviewing kook professors: one guy is dressed in reindeer furs as he plays the Star Spangled Banner on a replica of a flute found, not in the subject cave, but in one nearby. Another makes pathetic attempts to show how cavemen "might" have used an atlatl to throw a spear. It was comical and embarrassing and added nothing to the value of the movie. The final descent into the absurd is at the end where Herzog films a pair of albino crocodiles in a nearby zoo, then speculates that they might migrate 30 miles over the hills to the cave and look at the paintings and wonder about early man. Crocodiles! With brains the size of an acorn.
If the movie were only scenes in the cave, if Herzog had some art critics commenting instead of only archaeologists and himself, if this were only 30 minutes long, it would have been an achievement. As it is, we left the theater feeling like we had wasted the past hour and a half.
